About social work outide

Social Work Outside combines a relationship with the natural world and the pillars of the profession as a systemic solution to the environmental crisis via scholarship, training and practice.

Both on the micro and macro levels, a thoughtful combination of education and implementation of nature-informed interventions will have a twofold benefit: improving the wellness of each individual as they strengthen their relationship with the natural world, and improving the health of our planet as this individual care translates into action.
